Experience the Best of Brazilian Culture
Brazilian culture is one of the most fascinating in the world. The only Portuguese speaking country in South America, Brazilian culture has managed to blend elements of many diverse cultures into one incredible mix that is unique in its uninhibited flair and passionate way of life. For centuries Brazil has symbolized a bold escape into a primordial, tropical paradise, igniting the Western imagination like no other South American country. From the intense passion of Carnaval to the immensity of the Amazon jungle, it is a country of mythic proportions and staggering natural beauty, with stretches of unexplored rainforest, islands with pristine tropical beaches, dramatic coastlines and endless rivers. And of course there are the people themselves, who delight visitors with their charm, sensuality and vitality, of which Carnaval, surf, samba, capoeira and the omnipresent beach and party cultures are just a few of the many wonderful byproducts.
Brazilian culture is known for its fun-loving, relaxed and generous nature and Brazilians are truly an incredible people. It is completely normal in Floripa to chat with a local on the beach or at the supermarket and next thing you know, you are invited over for caipirinhas (a distinctive local drink) and to meet family or friends in their home. The phrase “no stress” will take on an entire new meaning for you after spending a week in Floripa, where the culture is focused more on enjoying life than climbing the corporate ladder. Where else in the world could you imagine a week-long nationwide celebration of the intensity of Brazilian Carnaval?
